Imagine that the sweet, beautiful, angelic protagonist of your favorite childhood fairy tale were actually a dangerous seductress, capable of heinous, deceitful acts and unforgivable cruelty towards fictional talking animals in pants and crowns. Need some help? Leave it to Brian Cummings, sick and demented individual that he is, to spark your imagination.
In a photo series that has come to be known as “Fairy Fatales,” Brian has created visual narratives telling the other side of the story, and unforgivingly implying twisted alternate endings to our favorite traditional tales.

Sleep tight. Don’t let the bed bugs bite. Because they will.
